Teen Video Challenge

Here’s a great project to work on with your teens over the winter…


Create a 30 – 90 second video that encourages teens to read and use libraries this summer and you could win $275! Just a short Public Service Announcement, using the theme Beneath the Surface could make you the New Hampshire Beneath the Surface Teen Video Challenge Winner. One winner can be selected from each state and CSLP member affiliate. Teens across America could see your video.


Aside from the $275 the winning team gets and the $125 in prizes the winning library gets, YALS (the Young Adult Librarians of NH) and the national Collaborative Summer Library Program want to encourage you to develop your video skills, have fun and encourage others to use your library all summer long.
